I managed to bruise my calf, about an inch below my knee about a month ago. I wasn't running- just reaching to take something off a shelf and my leg was leaning against the corner of a plastic box, where the box edge rested (for all of 5 seconds) resulted in a bruise. Nothing major, bit sore but I thought nothing of it.
That is until I went to run the next day. It felt sore enough that I held back and stopped running for the week, I didn't notice it improve so I went back running the next week.
The bruise has now gone, but the pain is still there! It has also developed a small bump (about a half inch in size) which is kind of sore, hurts more after running throbs when I'm sitting still, hurts when I run but in my experience not running doesn't really seem to help.
The bump is moveable so I'm less afraid and more curious, I will try to see a Doctor but as far as my GP goes, I don't hold up much hope to anything other then "take pain killers and never run again". I've no idea what on Earth is going on- whats the bump for? Has anyone had anything like this? And how do I get rid of it!
